[Ta Kung Pao & The Sun 11/10/06]

The lighting up ceremony and press conference was held yesterday, marking the start of TVB's 39th Anniversary celebrations at Tseung Kwan O's TVB City. Accompanied by Miss Hong Kong winner Aimee Chan, Sir Run Run Shaw was in high spirits as he took part in proceedings. With TVB Divas Liza Wang and Carol Cheng at his side, he lit up the stage and over a hundred artistes were present in an atmospheric occasion. Guest performers for the event were Leo Ku and Joey Yung.

At the main switch on, the front row of artistes were all female stars. On Liza Wang's side were Ada Choi, Melissa Ng, Sheren Tang, Niki Chow, Louisa So and Christine Ng. On Carol's side were Charmaine Sheh, Myolie Wu, Yoyo Mung, Bernice Liu, Linda Chung and Tavia Yeung. Bowie Lam and Roger Kwok were at the centre of the second row. In one act, stars from new series "Pearl of the Orient" Liza, Charmaine and Roger performed a song and dance routine and the cast from "Welcome to the House" also put on a comedy sketch item.

Liza's series "Pearl of the Orient" will begin airing in November and so will not be included in this year's nominations for the anniversary awards. Liza says she does not mind because she has done her best already and she does not want to think too much. She supports Charmaine to win this year's 'Best Female Artiste' award, because she played four different characters in "Maiden's Vow" and this was quite unusual. Although Myolie is also not bad, her series has not yet aired and as people have only seen her look, they do not know how her performance is yet.

With Liza's support, Charmaine does not feel any pressure, but she is thankful for the encouragement and hopes not to disappoint Liza. Talking of her strong opposition from Myolie, Charmaine does not feel this as she says all of the nominees are strong opponents. With more reports of her having dinner with executives and exchanging new contracts for awards, Charmaine says she just finds this all very funny because she still has two years to run on her contract and the meal was just normal dining out.

Myolie was dressed in a sexy outfit for the occasion in a deep V neckline and backless dress. She smiles that she still does not have a perfect figure, but over the past few months, she has shown off her body no matter if she is fat or slim. With five nominations last year, but just one this year, Myolie does not feel her chances are reduced because she hopes to win with just the one chance. However, she does agree with Liza's comments. She predicts that there will be a lot of gossip about conflicts in the anniversary month, but she will not take notice of it and she does not feel anything about it.

This is the second time that Leo has been the guest at the lighting up ceremony and there are rumours that he has well and truly kicked out TVB's Godson Hacken Lee and that he will have a chance to take the Male Singer award at the end of the year. He insists that this is two separate things and people should not read too much into it. He also says that the words 'kick out' are very negative and should not be used because everything is arranged as work and he has not thought about winning awards as he will just go with the flow. Asked about reports that her three properties total $82 million, Joey immediately replied: "Don't make me happy, I am afraid of a falling property market. My mother looks after my investments and she knows how to do it. I don't pay much attention, but the upkeep of the three properties is too high, so I am planning to sell the apartment in Happy Valley."

Roger celebrated his birthday with his wife Cindy Au and a group of friends earlier in a Wanchai Japanese restaurant, but he was not in a good mood when he saw the press. However, he still posed for photographs with his wife.

Wow! Charmaine looks stunning. Can sing and dance too (has learnt ballet at young age) and she is hot... I like to see her wearing red...

I was excited when I saw her name on the nomination list. She has done an excellent acting for DOP and MV. This will leave a deep impression on everyone's mind. Just as what "Yee Shun" in WAB did.

All the best to Charmaine and hope she win more and more awards in time to come.

The chinese version of 'Carmen' is 卡门.

Carmen is actually a title for a very famous French opera.

Quote from wikipedia:

"Carmen is a French opera by Georges Bizet. The libretto was written by Meilhac and Halévy, based on the story of the same title by Prosper Mérimée.

The story concerns the eponymous Carmen, a beautiful gypsy with a fiery temper. Not careful with her love, she is responsible for the downfall of many men. She woos the corporal Don José, leading him to mutiny against his superior. His infatuation causes him to join a band of smugglers, of which Carmen is a member. He is happy with Carmen for a brief period, but is driven to madness when she turns from him to the bullfighter Escamillo."

So basically the song sing about Carmen frivolous outlook in men and love:

* 爱情不过是一种普通的玩意 一点也不希奇
男人不过是一件消谴的东西 有什么了不起
爱情不过是一种普通的玩意 一点也不希奇
男人不过是一种消谴的东西 有什么了不起 *
L'amour I'amour I'amour I'amour
# 什么叫情 什么叫意 还不是大家自己骗自己
什么叫痴 什么叫迷 简直是男的女的在做戏 #
是男人我都喜欢 不管穷富和高低 是男人我都抛弃

Repeat * #

你要是爱上我 你就自己找晦气 我要是爱上你
